  • yup. By someone who's surprisingly active on GaG to this day.
    How did it make me feel? Pretty surprised at first. Then a bit scared after threats to track me down via my IP and contact my rl friends on FB were made.

      super desperate for attention and/or validation. So... basically trying to compensate for what they're lacking in the grand scheme of things.

  • I won't say cyber bullying per se but the last forum I was on - There was a very insidious element on the forum where they got into groups - If anyone said anything that was against them especially if it was a bit sensitive, they were hounded and if you could make the person leave it was considered a big win - The parting shot was always "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen " - We are talking about topics like "Do dogs have souls?" etc

  • I think pretty much everyone on here has been exposed to some form of cyber bullying. I get called horrible names nearly every day and have had a couple people threaten to hunt me down and that kind of stuff. I don't think about it much and i have pretty thick skin. I do worry about some people that come here and seem to get really affected by it though.

  • I have, at the time it made me feel really insecure and lonely because it started of as cyber bullying and then it moved to my school because that girl was also in my school. She decided to get people who where 3/4 years older than me involved in the cyber bullying and later also in school. It ended up with a group surrounding me at the lockers while i was alone and since i hate to fight i tried to ignore them, luckily a guy friend of mine walked towards the lockers and stuck up for me so i could walk away, i was crying the whole way home. And i did not want to go to school anymore and since i've always loved school my parents knew it was serious when i told them. At the time i didn't want tot get in trouble and finish high school without drama, but that's impossible ofcourse. I decided to tell one of the teachers because i knew i couldn't fix this with a fight! They basically said that she did it to more people and told her that if she did it again she would be expelled. Next day she did it again but instead of running to the teacher i just turned around and laughed in her face. It shut her up! A year later i saw her in a club and she was trying to get all over this dude and i happen to saw my moment and tripped her😂 She didn't notice it was me though. I hate bullies i have always hated them but i stick up for myself and for other people getting bullied! And right now people don't even try anymore it's great!!

      does he bully people?

    • 24d

      If someone acts like an idiot, he does put them in their place. But he also helps to take down really horrible people. Remember the two girls in FL that burned a rare gopher tortoise? Lord J is one of the few responsible for getting a copy of the self incriminating video they posted, sent to the proper authorities. He doesn't needlessly target weak individuals, only those who are truly deserving of justice dealt to them.

    • 24d

      ok well thats a little different from what i mean. im for that

  • It has happened to me before especially during my teen years. People from my school would start Facebook hate groups about me and post all over the internet that I should kill myself. And during that time I felt: sad, depressed, and suicidal.

      How does that make you feel?

    • 24d

      It's sad when kids are so trapped, they feel the only escape is death. Bullying in general is terrible. And we as a society should work together to try and nib it in the bud when possible. I understand that's harder on the internet because there's a lot of anonymity, but usually you can report things (like mods and admins and even regular users on this site) So, that there is a way to draw attention to it.

  • I've been bullied in both scenarios. Cyber bullying is silly though. You don't like something someone says? You delete/block them. Boom, you're done.
    I don't see how cyber bullying is even an issue, honestly.

  • Yes I've been cyber bullied but it didn't have a real affect on me as I do not give two fucks about what people who are afraid of telling me their actual first name think about me. But then when my best friend did committed suicide because of cyber bullying, the bully told me it was my fault. That I could've stopped it. That he didn't care enough about me to stay alive. That he was just a "Stupid worthless emotional fag like me" That's when I got pissed. I started to believe it, and my depression has gotten continuously worse since then.

      Angry at first but when the mods chose sides I didn't even say farewell there.

  • My brother was being bullied by older guys when he was around 10 -11 so he called me for help and I kicked their asses 😎

  • Cyber bullying. Nah not really
    I think it's an issue for some people yea. Everyone deals with environmental stimuli differently. It's not ok in real life and certainly not ok through the cyber space

  • I'm not sure what happened to the bullies, but I've been able to defend myself against cyber-bullies. I have thick skin. Hopefully, they took a look at themselves and realized what kind of douches they were being.

      I hate cyber-bullying. These idiots have nothing better to do than to bully someone else just because they already feel small for whatever reason. They don't reach out for help and instead bully someone because they think that's the way it's supposed to be.
